Stone Flag Theft is, unfortunately, a modern day crime which we could all do without.


The high value of these much sought after slabs and the ease with which they can be sold on.

If stone yards are prepared to pay as much as £45 a square metre for good quality York Stone Flags, then the thieves don't have to throw very many of your flags, into the back of a van, or car seat, in order to make easy money do they?

It's a growing problem and never more prevalent than the present, with high unemployment and an overlong recession contributing to the problem. So, what can you do, to prevent these modern day stone rogues, from stealing your precious York Stone Flags?

  • Well, for starters, we can all acknowledge, that the flags that we have on open view, are both valuable and much sought after.
  • Secondly, we need to accept, that there are thieves out there, who are prepared to enter your premises and steal your property, at particular times, during the day and night.
  • Third, creating awareness locally, is always helpful. I.e. Alerting our neighbours and neighbourhood watch team of our concerns.
  • We can talk to our local bobbies and discuss the problem with them. They will be able to inform you of any similar nearby crimes.
  • If you have already attracted thieves onto your property, then the likelihood is, that if you have remaining flags on-site, they will , more often than not, return and assess their chances of 'getting away with it again'. If this is the case, it may well be wise to consider a different form of paving material and to sell your remaining flagstones on. Sad, but the ultimate deterrent if your flags are already a target!
  • Security is another option. Thieves don't like bright lights illuminating their presence. They like cctv cameras even less!
  • Remember! Locking the garden gate, or driveway gates, prevents the thief from making a speedy getaway. The more difficult you make this possibility, the more off-putting it will be to the thief!

So, there we have it. A few tips, from somebody who has visited the crime scenes of hundreds of stone flag theft victims.
